Now they've got their man.
The Jaguars have agreed to a six-year deal with the Buffalo Bills linebacker. He is is the type of player general manager Gene Smith loves, a hard-working, tough player.
I asked around some about Posluszny the past couple of days.
Said one coach: "He's a little stiff."
Said a general manager: "Good player, not great. Will be overpaid."
Until the dollar figures come out, we won't know that. But he's certainly an upgrade for a defense that needed it.
Now the Jaguars will target safety. They made contact with the agent for San Diego safety Eric Weddle Tuesday. That will be a race between the Chargers, Cowboys and Jaguars. As of late Tuesday, Weddle was unsigned.
The money on that deal could get in the $8-million-a-year range, which is pretty steep but Weddle is the best safety on the market and Quintin Mikell just signed a deal in the $7 million-per-year range.
